Age 71, Truro. With vast sorrow and heavy hearts, we mourn the passing of John C. McIntyre, of Truro. John was born and raised in Dominion (Cape Breton), a son of the late John William and Edna (Gouthro) McIntyre. Affectionately remembered by his wife, Sharon (Lynds) McIntyre, the sunshine of his life. Loving father of three children, Belinda (Trevor), Derek (Anneliese) and Jason McIntyre; two stepchildren, Aaron (Dawn) and Angelina Crowe. Much cherished granddad of 15 grandchildren and a great-granddaughter. He is also survived by his sisters, Diane (Victor Stresman), Colleen (Wayne Clarke) and his brother, Lorne (Michelle McIntyre). The friends and family of Bill W. respectfully remember John of 38 years. An exceptional thank you to one of God’s angels, Dr. Stephen Ellis and his receptionist Holly, Palliative Care, VON, Angelina Crowe and all that assisted in his care to allow him to remain at home.
John left us with riddles that became clear, messages of wisdom, the power of peer support and silence, unconditional love and compelling memories. Following his wishes, cremation has taken place. A visitation will be held on Friday, December 4th from 2-3 p.m. followed by a private family service at 3 p.m., both in Colchester Community Funeral Home, 512 Willow St., Truro. COVID-19 restrictions will be in place. Live webcasting will begin at 2:58 p.m. (Atlantic Time) and is available with online condolences by visiting: www.ColchesterCommunity.com

Rest easy, John.
